      Frances H Great flick about the ways British prisoners of war managed to run rings around the Germans, based on a real memoir and well acted by the great British actor, Dirk Bogarde. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/18/20 Full Review ashley h Password Is Courage is a decent film. It is about a British officer who escapes from the Stalag VIII-B POW camp. Dirk Bogarde and Alfred Lynch give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Andrew L. Stone did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama.
